    It's downright gorgeous and a total blast to play alone or with friends. A truly realized vision at the top of its genre, Rayman Origins is an extravaganza with plenty of action to keep it fresh from start to finish and beyond.

    Even so, Rayman: Origins is the best designed, most accessible, vast, gameplay rich and fun platformer that I've played in a very long time. It's nothing short of a Nintendo A-list (which I still think of as the best platforming game developer ever to have graced the market) and could be the beginning of a beautiful series.

    Rayman Origins re-introduces an intense freshness to a genre that many gamers chose to remember by a couple of well-known brand names that monopolize interest… and the rest consider long dead. It delivers many hours of pure fun (and some discomfort for completionists) and does that in the best way possible. [May 2012]

    In lesser hands, the art design might have overwhelmed everything, leaving the levels to feel like an overly cluttered and repetitive mess. Instead, it's a wonderful platformer with its own unique style that's most definitely worth experiencing, and especially shared.

    A well-written story could have transformed Rayman Origins into a beautiful fairytale. Without it, it's an incredibly fun ride and a great party game.

    Beautiful art, no DRM, and works great with a gamepad. There are plenty of hidden easter eggs and the soundtrack always seems to be spot on.

I've always enjoyed Rayman games, and this was no exception. The game is packed with content in the highest form of quality from gameplay to music to the graphics. If only there were more games like this on the PC. Also, the difficulty of the game was perfectly integrated, it suits both casual and intense gamers. Expand

    Think back to your favorite childhood cartoon. That's what Rayman Origins is like. Beautiful visuals with a great art style and animations,Think back to your favorite childhood cartoon. That's what Rayman Origins is like. Beautiful visuals with a great art style and animations, music that fits perfectly into the audiovisual experience, quirky and entertaining characters, a level design that is easy to learn and hard to master (if you're after high scores) and an up to four player co-op mode to play with family or friends. And on top of that the PC version comes entirely without intrusive DRM, third party software or other annoying anti piracy measures and costs less than most other full size games. There are only a few games I keep in the back of my head to show my children if I ever have some, and this is definitely one of them. Expand

    The Canadian government can be proud of co-funding such an excellent piece of art! All games should be of such superior, flawless, beautifulThe Canadian government can be proud of co-funding such an excellent piece of art! All games should be of such superior, flawless, beautiful quality.

    I hope they will make a version for kids one day, a version that's a bit less hard.

    Uno de los mejores juegos de la saga después de Rayman 2. Los controles son buenísimos y la jugabilidad frenética. La música y los gráficosUno de los mejores juegos de la saga después de Rayman 2. Los controles son buenísimos y la jugabilidad frenética. La música y los gráficos también son increíbles, sinceramente siento por momentos que estoy en un dibujo animado... Es un juego muy pulido a nivel visual y a nivel jugable, aunque pueda parecer genérico de momentos, la jugabilidad frenética logra que te olvides de esto, y los niveles de perseguir el tesoro están muy bien diseñados. Son instancias muy divertidas y la vas a pasar muy bien. La dificultad ascendiente y la exploración para conseguir skins también es un punto muy positivo (quitando el hecho de que las skins son pocas, y esta todo lleno de simples recolores). Sin embargo, critico el excesivo ensayo y error que tienen el juego, especialmente en el ultimo nivel... Y la falta de modo online para el modo cooperativo. La historia tampoco me gusto. Si bien agradezco que hayan traído de vuelta a Betilla y a los electoons del Rayman 1 después de mucho tiempo... Que paso con el Rayman tierno, valiente y serio del Rayman 2?! No por nada termino siendo mi Rayman favorito de todos. Este tiene el universo y jugabilidad perfecta de la saga.
    Como sea, Rayman Origins a pesar de sus fallos, es uno de mis videojuegos de plataformas favoritos, básicamente es el regreso de Rayman! Rayman es una saga para quedarse :)
